The Iliad and the Odyssey
Eagled-eyed readers of this here bulogue may have noticed in the cluttered jumble of thrift store finds in a recent post a little book that I was very, no... make that VERY... hmmm, still not strong enough... SUPER DOUBLE EXTRA VERY HAPPY to have found after looking for it for the three years that I've known of it's existence.
Published in 1956 and illustrated by childrens book tag team masters, and husband and wife team Alice and Martin Provensen it is, in my extremely biased opinion, one the the finest illustrated kid's books I've ever seen. In fact I like it so much that it pre-emptively influenced a job I did last year on a similar theme.
So if any of this hyperbolic hyperbole has got yer attenzione then take an odyssey of your own through a few pages of this treasure that I've shared on my flickr photostream.
